Wonderful and talented dancers. Thank you for sharing the Hawaiian culture with us. Food could be better. Drinks could have more alcohol.

The Kahlua pig and turkey were delicious. Many side dishes to choose from were also good. The show was very entertaining. We got the preferred seating which allowed us to check in first, up front seats, and first through the buffet line.

This was a nice luau with more traditional Hawaiin dances. Food was good and they provided activities - hula lessons, temporary tattoos, etc while waiting for the dinner. Nice location on the bay and easy parking.

I have been to two luaus on two other islands before this one and while each was unique the one thing that was never very good was the food. The food here was actually tasty. They had the usual pork but they also added turkey and teriyaki beef as well. The dessert options were limited and I wasn't a fan... More

We had not originally planned on going to a luau, but we are glad we did. During the orientation with Blue Hawaii Tours, we were introduced to this particular luau when the agents learned that we were going to Big Island. We looked into it and the reviews were decent. We had a little money left over and were at... More

I can't say I've been to any other Lu'aus but I thought this one was very good. They were very well organized and provided a lot of different activities (e.g., teach you how to make fish out of palm leaves, teach you how to dance, give you temporary tattoos) to entertain you before dinner and the big show started. The... More

We lined up to check in and we were seated by 5:30. After food was served it started to pour! Our food was soaked, they handed out flimsy pocket parkas, and cut the show short. People were getting up and walking out it was raining so hard, they had no back up plans. By 7:15 it was all over.

The entire evening was excellent. Easy check-in, good live music while seating, activities for all from learning to hula to weaving a palm frond fish to getting a tattoo to learning how to use a poi ball. The imu ceremony with the introduction of the main course for dinner. The buffet with open bar. The entrance of the royal court.... More
